Subject [jira] Created: (MCLEAN-25) Optionally don't delete the 'target ' directory
Date Sat, 17 Mar 2007 14:04:33 GMT
Optionally don't delete the  'target ' directory

                 Key: MCLEAN-25
             Project: Maven 2.x Clean Plugin
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Joern Huxhorn

Would it be possible to add an option to the clean-plugin so only the content of the target
folder(s) are deleted but not the directory itself?

This would help developers using windoze quite a lot since:
- clean fails if you happen to have opened a command line with target as the current dir.
- windoze closes explorer windows pointing to deleted directories, so you have to reopen the
windows after a clean install

Those problems would both be solved by an option like deleteRoot=false or something.
